As I scroll through your great articles I look forward to getting to the “Leave here with a laugh”. Often worth waiting for, usually humorous. Today however I waited… and waited… in vain. Where oh where could it be? I even went back and scrolled through the entire newsletter Twice, but to no avail.

Also, please remember that a large percentage of your readers are of an age that we can’t remember what we ate yesterday, much less, what we read yesterday. When you give us a Brain Teaser on Saturday and the answer on Sunday, please repeat the question. I read the question and think “I’ll watch for the answer tomorrow” then when I see the answer, I don’t remember the question.

Thank you for your great work.

Ahahaha! [corona] virus math. “We now report six days a week on the pandemic — in this Sunday newsletter and every weekday in our RV Daily Tips.”

That would be seven (7) days a week, but whose counting during these difficult days?

There are 5 weekdays and 1 Sunday in a week. Do you have the fever that goes with the virus? LOL

In your rush to be glib, self righteous, and even racist you have read the comment incorrectly. So let me re-quote it for you ‘ We now report six days a week on the pandemic — in this Sunday newsletter and every weekday in our RV Daily Tips’ . Sunday + 5 weekdays in fact = 6 ( note Saturday is not mentioned) . But even if someone (other that you) had made a mistake, perhaps you might like to find some compassion instead of this mockery. You will note the very first story of this issue is about the good friend of the lovely people that put this newsletter together. You might want to focus your energy on sending him some good thoughts instead of brooding in your negativity. That would be better for all of us right now, including you.

The virus has an official designation COVID-19

Since people are being attacked for looking Asian it is important to use the correct designation for the virus.

Saturday is not considered a weekday.

Oooohhhh weekdays are considered as Monday – Friday and weekend is Saturday and Sunday. Therefore if you publish every day of the week ((Monday-Friday)) and again on Sunday then Beatles virus match = 🎼 6 DAYS A WEEK 🎼

How about calling it what it is…COVID-19 and NOT the Chinese virus.

Well, these things usually take on a name from the place of origin. In this case it was Wuhan, China. That’s fairly Chinese in my books.

Well, the Spanish Flu got its name from Spain, (https://www.history.com/news/why-was-it-called-the-spanish-flu) the country that had more news coverage when names were being handed out. This name was given even though the first known case was in Kansas.

In 2015, the W.H.O. updated their best practice naming conventions (https://apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/handle/10665/163636/WHO_HSE_FOS_15.1_eng.pdf?sequence=1) to avoid naming a disease after a geographic area. I suppose it is to reduce many people’s desire to blame the ‘others’ for their woes.

For those of you who must have someone to blame, the US just surpassed China for the number of cases reported, even though our lack of testing implies we have even more cases. If you must put a nationality as part of the name, why don’t you call it the American Virus?

For the rest of us, COVID-19 might still work.

Great economical place to stay is Maple Hill RV Park in Jamestown TN. Small clean out of the way location. Minutes from great shopping.
